reflected back on the 1995-1996 government shut down, but i spent a lot of time thinking about it, and what a lot of people don't realize is that a big reason that we ended up with that government shut down is because of the disagreement between the parties over whose numbers to use, whether omb's numbers or cbo's numbers. we have to agree on the basic numbers, and the basic baseline that we're working from before we ultimately reach any kind of agreement, and i'll stop. >> good. thank you, phil. we're almost out of time. one or two more comments, anyone on the panel? >> phil made a very good point, and it reminds me of an analogous situation, perhaps in 1983 with social security fix. when walking out of the room, the people who agreed from one side of the aisle to the other also agreed to allow each other to characterize the agreement in the way of their choosing. for example, the agreement to tax social security benefits became a tax on the democratic side and benefit cuts on the republican side, leaving open the possibility that give people -- if people decide there's an era of good feel

that even in a divided government conagra's and congressional leaders of both parties could come together with an agreement to avoid the pending 40% sequester and enact legislation would reduce the growth and spending and raise taxes that in today's dollars would be the equivalent of $1.8 trillion over a ten year period. also on the positive side, some will disagree the 1990 budget summit did put in place an enforcement procedure that takes deficit targets for the caps on discretionary spending as i've indicated and the correct government concept development the chairman puts forth and i was also disappointed in the 1990 budget agreement that may have been a factor as i indicated. i believe those procedural changes did help limit the deficit spending and help lead to the 1993 and could lead to the balanced budget act of the century. but in the end it is also true that after negotiations and sequestering 26 at aaron preus air force base in weekend retreat became a and the 11 day siege in the final negotiations put to rest towards the big eight that you are going to hear from. today along w
